hey rod. i think the residents of that lake have all the weeds killed off still, am i correct? that's a very green dingy lake. i suggest a lure in the ''extreme contrast'' catagory. white/black, fl.red/white, brown/fl.yellow, fl.orange/black. fl.red/fl.yellow fl.orange/fl.red with black... multi colored firesnake or any precedeing combo in firesnake... that type. with more bright than dark, or more dark than bright..

Mouse color for sure. What would be your 2nd choice

he was right about red lakes reeds. of course, cool he's Johnny P!! what kind of fish? pike i'd go to a little smaller version of the fat tail ''Ride''. firesnake in multi color throughout with a solid black top. or a medium ''Taunt'' in the same except no black back just firesnake all around with a silver blade on either. muskie, same i guess but bigger is cool too. mabe the super taunt. not shown on the site yet is the ''Megataunt''. in the works right as we speak. giant body. not for the cheaper rods. wait a minute... what do you care your the, '' cool ''RODMAKER''

thanks, nice meeting you also. hope that multi-colored Firesnake works for you. your ride is going to be painted in a few minutes, i'll send a pic or two when i can. customers seem to like to see it in stages so i figure why not. but... when it's done you get no pics. anticipation can be good. grin good luck this weekend!!

I posted this info in the Sponsors Forum, but thought I'd put it in here too. Nice to hear something positive about someone once in a while...

FYI to all- I had Don make me a muskie lure a while ago. Not only was the end-product phenomenal, but his quality of service was top notch. This was before he was a sponsor on this HSOforum, so it wasn't that he had some hidden agenda for doing a bang up job with me either. I was really impressed with the lure and the job he did while working with me. I recommend him highly and I would have done so regardless of whether he was a sponsor here or not.

    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
